Mediterranean Cruise, Port 5: Santorini, Greece.

Santorini is like a dream. Our ship anchored very early, before either of us had awakened. After waking up, I pulled back the curtains and stepped out onto our balcony, my eyes wide with the sight of this truly amazing place.  I mean, our ship was anchored in the crater of what was once a tremendous Volcano.  The eruption that caused what we see today of this area was 3600 years ago. The cliffs that surround you from this vantage point, are the sides of the ancient mountain, and the towns of Fira and Oia that are perched atop these cliffs seemingly skim the sky, until of course you travel up and look down. The views from Oia and Fira are simply spectacular, and if you can take it in while eating Greek yogurt slathered with honey, you all the more likely to appreciate this place. And no we didn't take the Donkey's. Up or down.
